Welcome Thierry, there is no difference in what can be received with the most popular cards, only in the extra features they offer.

If you want a budget system, then the Skystar2 is a cracking piece of kit, if you are looking for a card with a hardware processor and a TV out, then the Skystar1 or Hauppauge DVBs will cost more, but provide the same channels.

You will need to use one of the front end programs like MyTheatre and a softcam like Multidec.

I' d like to buy a USB version of a PC sat card, wich one you suggest.
I 'like to use Poorman cam to communicate with the smart card (or a CI cam interface) and I' don't think I need a hardware processor (i'got a Pentium IV 2.4 GHz laptop and a AMD 1.7 GHz desktop) and I don't need a Tv out feature!
Any suggestion ?
